More seeds

If you use 4 hours per problem, it almost approaches meditation.
The seeds of tactical destruction as Dan Heisman calls it are already well incorporated in my thoughtprocess. That is to say, I can't avoid to look at these issues in a position.
I'm pondering about more seeds of destruction for more complex positions. So far I have found two new seeds:
Squares where piece activity converges.
Overworked pieces that defend those focal points.
More on this after more meditation.

    I'm on my eleventh circle and instead of rapid rote memorization of the CT-ART problems, I too am on a quest to recognize "the seeds" I found my results for the last two circles were flat. However, I am recognizing and "reading" teh positions much better. I am forcing myslef to say things like " Oh, that's a deflection technique"
